We’ve just spotted an article in this month’s Country Life which has identified the Lauragais – home of La Bomba – as among the top most unspoilt regions to buy a house in France. Of course we knew this back in 2001 when we first bought the house!

The article describes the Lauragais as a “little Tuscany” and “largely bypassed by English buyers”. In our experience that is certainly true. It remains a true chunk of “La France Profonde” and a wonderful place to relax far from the hordes of Brits who invade Provence every summer. But don’t tell anyone!
